This song is dedicated and in loving tribute to my dearly departed dad. You'll be missed, pops.

+ R.I.P. Andy Durnford : November 11, 1950 - December 4, 2009 +

I started this song after returning home from Florida where my father had been staying. I gotta say, it's a relief to have a creative outlet such as music for helping to channel grief and the other miseries of life. I would definitely not feel the way I do about life if not for my music.

I got the intro and chorus/verse done before I left for a vacation to St. Maarten and created the bridge and fleshed out the rest of the track when I returned, more relaxed and not so crazy. This is probably my most full-sounding and properly eq'd piece to date. Have spent the past 2 days almost solid working on it to get it how I wanted.

Kinda sad, but uplifting melody -- definitely catchy though. :d As usual, made entirely in Reason 4.0.The intro is definitely daft punk influenced though I came up with it quite by accident when I was messing around with the sequencer in Thor.

The two organs are courtesy of the Electro-Mechanical Refill pack that's currently free for download for registered Reason users on the propellerheads website -- it's sick! Tried a little something different with the drums this time, I'm loving rex files.

As usual, please rate/review/enjoy. :)

Congratz on getting featured

On the front page ;) you will probaly get a top score afterwords again. It's very chill, and the song is really relaxing overall. I like the bass, and the relaxing keys playing in the background. If this song should get a 10, then you should add some sax-solo to it, since it would fit very well! It's like a combination of house and jazz.

Uniqe style you ride - I really like it ;)

durn responds:
